One Enchanted Evening by Katie Fforde
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Century
Publication date: 2nd March 2023

Ever since she can remember, Meg has wanted to be a professional cook.

But it's 1964, and in restaurant kitchens all over England it is still a man's world.

Then she gets a call from her mother who is running a small hotel in Dorset.

There's an important banqueting event coming up. She needs help and she needs it now!

When Meg arrives, the hotel seems stuck in the past. But she loves a challenge, and sets to work.

Then Justin, the son of the hotel owner, appears, determined to take over the running of the kitchen.

Infuriated, Meg is determined to keep cooking - and soon sparks between them begin to fly.

Will their differences be a recipe for disaster? After all, the course of true love never did run smooth...

Katie Fforde's books are like a warm hug. I'll admit, I had only read A Wedding In Provence but I was so excited to see some characters pop up in One Enchanted Evening. I believe there is quite a lot of crossover so I will need to go back and read!

One Enchanted Evening is set in the 1960s and Meg goes to help her mother Louise at Nightingale Woods hotel in Dorset. The owner has passed away and his sons are on the hunt for his beneficiary. They have a luncheon to plan but everything seems to have fallen apart. Meg, with the help of Ambrosine, an elderly woman with an incredible WW2 backstory, gets to recreating the menu.

Meg meets Justin, the grandson of the late owner who is set on taking over the kitchen. Meg wants to stand her ground and continue cooking and eventually sparks fly between them. Of course, it doesn't all run smoothly.

Katie Fforde is a fantastic storyteller and I am a sucker for a romance with a happy ending.
